Mediawatch: Lashings visit a prelude for Pakistan?

 

THE Lashings All-Stars visit to Doha attracted huge media coverage in the Gulf and the success of the event, with over 10,000 watching the World XI take on an Asia XI, means that Qatar could soon host international cricket on a more regular basis Al Jazeera TV reported (above) that the Pakistan national team could be poised to make Qatar its new home and revealed that talks have taken place between the hosts and the PCB. The Gulf Times gave the contest a glowing review: "the organisers could not have chosen a better time and players in their aim to promote the game in the region. They pitted cricket’s two finest left-handed batsmen -- Brian Lara and Sanath Jayasuriya -- against each other and the crowd was thrilled to see the two legendary run-getters right in front of their eyes." And The Peninsular was similarly excited by the game, saying that Lara and Jayasuriya had "dazzled" the crowd.
